A virtual data room (VDR) is a highly effective instrument for streamlining mission-critical processes and processes, addressing bottlenecks, and steering them towards achieving the desired outcomes. There are many different VDRs perform the same way and deciding on a bad one could put your documents at risk for theft, unauthorised access or loss.

To ensure you select the most appropriate option for your needs, think carefully how a provider stands out from other providers in these crucial aspects:


Pricing is one of the most important and often overlooked differences between VDR providers. Many legacy providers charge per-document, which may be fine for small projects, or if they have well-defined document structures. However this isn’t a good choice for larger transactions, or M&A due-diligence. The flat-rate pricing offered by modern providers is a more appealing choice for large projects as well as long-term contracts. These flat-rate monthly fees include unlimited pages, users, and storage.

Permission Settings

The degree of granularity that you have in the permissions settings can have a significant impact on your ability to maintain confidentiality and avoid misinterpretations. Look for options such as “view only” and the option to turn off watermarks to block downloading of files intended for consultation only. Review detailed activity logs to help you identify workflow roadblocks and assess the level participation in your team.
